  1. That's what I was thinking; as the Beetle map made such an improvement to Griso's not performance as such, useability (?). I was thinking of installing Meinolf's map on the V11.
  2. With my 2013 1200 8v Griso installing the Beetle map smoothed out the idle, cured the popping on deceleration, made the throttle less twitchy ( mostly noticable in a corner trying to balance the suspension ) & improved the mpg. In my opinion a good investment
  3. Lucky Dog An old guy around here has one that he beats to death, leaves out in all weather, has dropped a few times. Still it does look good under all the scars & grime.
  4. I feel we should have a Moto Guzzi pledge that we'd sing with a hand over our hearts & a tear rolling down our cheek !
  5. Good to see you getting closer to where you want the specs to be The exhaust note as you bring up the revs is intoxicating
  6. Digging a little deeper, they have the rear shock as well.
  7. There are more knowledgeable members on here than me , (Chuck) who will comment at some point but a few other things to consider. You're talking about changing the suspension geometry so you need to look at the offset of the yokes, the length of the forks & how that changes the height & trail of the front. On the shock, the shaft length is important & how it affects the height of the rear of the bike. It's not that it can't be done but it isn't to my knowledge a simple 'plug & play' operation. I'm interested in the topic & hope the more mechanically skilled will chime in.
  8. That's the pic I was going to post A good looking Griso there !
  9. Finished making the fork cap extensions that are to go on the V11’s Showa forks. I had a welder add the aluminum tube & then I turned the rough fabrication on my mini-lathe. Thanks to Chuck for the long distance coaching which got me through the initial set up. Machined the ‘nut’ today & am quite pleased.
  10. I did the same, added the fairing to my Griso. Made up some brackets & moved the headlight forward but am pleased with the result.
